Yahoo has partnered with Dropbox to integrate Dropbox's storage solution into Yahoo Mail.

"By bringing Dropbox to Yahoo! Mail, it’ll now be easier for you to send, receive, share and manage your attachments," says Yahoo in a blog post.

Dropbox's Joshua Jenkins says, "Email attachments can be tricky: they’ve got file size limits, you can’t keep them updated, and when you add people to a thread, attachments are the first to get left behind. he Yahoo! Mail team decided to fix this—by integrating with Dropbox!"

"Since this integration is Dropbox-powered, you can even send that big album of vacation pics without worrying about the 25 MB file limit," he says. "Plus, it’s easy to save any photo, video, or doc in your Yahoo! Mail straight to your Dropbox, where you can get to it from anywhere."

If you don't already use Dropbox, you can click on any attachment in Yahoo Mail, select "Save All," then "Save to Dropbox," and it will give you instructions for setting up an account. Otherwise, you can just start using it.

You can send new attachments from Dropbox in Yahoo Mail by selecting the dropdown next to the paperclip icon, and hit "Share from Dropbox". For large files, you can drag and drop the attachment into email, but send it through Dropbox.

The integration is available in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
